Errentai is a unique local opera in northern Shaanxi and central and western Inner Mongolia, which is an important representative of Chinese folk music. In the new era, it is not only the objective need of the contemporary inheritance of the art of the Errentai, but also the inevitable requirement of promoting the strategy of “cultural China” to strengthen the research on the inheritance of the Chinese local opera Errentai. This paper first briefly introduces the art of Errentai in China’s local opera, then reveals the dilemma faced by the contemporary development of Errentai, and then discusses the inheritance strategy of Errentai in the contemporary context.
